Youth & Children’s Work

Our youth and children’s team support, encourage, resource, equip and love all those who work with children and young people: volunteer and paid workers, trainee students, school chaplains, teachers and clergy, readers and others.

  • Oversee the selection, recruitment and employment of paid workers, school and college chaplains, trainee students on placement and gap-year volunteers
  • Host and be involved in events, conferences, residential experiences and overseas exhanges:
  • Ensure that children and young people are able to shape and influence diocesan and national church decisions
  • Influence policy at local and national level
  • Liaise with other service providers locally, regionally and nationally
